The President of the Senate, Sen. David Mark has urged for cooperation among Nigerians in the fight against the Boko Haram insurgents, insisting that this is not time for anyone to sit on the fence irrespective of religion or tribe.
Marked who said the current fight against terror is about our survival as a nation, reiterated the need for the sponsors of Boko Haram to be unmasked, adding that unless this is done, the country will not succeed in the fight to end the insurgency.
The Senate President who spoke after decorating his aide-de-camp (ADC), Chief Superintendent of Police (CSP) Abel Miri, with his new rank of Assistant Commissioner of Police (ACP) in Abuja Tuesday, challenged security agents to bring their intelligence skills to bear in order to unmask those behind the insurgency.
The Senate President advised citizens and community leaders to collaborate with security agents with a view to exposing the financiers of the terror group.
He said all hands must be on deck in the fight against the terror group, noting fighting insurgency demands extraordinary measures.
“All Nigerians must see these terrorists as a threat to our existence,” Mark said.
Adding: “Nobody should sit on the fence any more. It is a choice we have to make in chasing these terrorists away or wait to be consumed by them. This is not about politics, religion or ethnicity. It is about our survival as a nation.”
